Which Thermaltake?

Usually I see people on a tight budget go for XFX Core Edition (Bronze , Seasonic made) / Antec High Current Gamer (Bronze, Seasonic made), Corsair CX (Bronze , CWT made but CHEAP when on sale) ~ $30-50 ; PC Power & Cooling was popular too before the OCZ takeover and subsequent dissolving of this company

i.e. this CX600 for ~ $40 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028


and Rosewill Captone (Gold , Superflower made) / Seasonic G series (gold , Seasonic) for Gold level ~ $70-80

This probably belongs in another thread. I ordered a Cooler Master Vortex Plus. It will fit...sort of. Its a tad too tall for the CM Elite 120, so I ordered a Evercool 80x80x15 PWM fan to replace the 80mm on there. One of the dang mounting posts for the brackets broke, so now waiting on a replacement. oy. mad.gif
